travel

From disparate bookings to flight delays, you already had enough to worry about when you traveled—and that was before COVID-19. TripIt is here to equip you with the tools you need to help you make the best decisions for your trip. With your health and safety in mind, we’ve created new resources—and enhanced some of your most-trusted features—so you’re better prepared for each step of your journey.

BEFORE YOU GO

TripIt Traveler Resource Center

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, global travel guidelines are constantly changing, making it hard to know what to expect. TripIt wants to help you stay as informed as possible. From public health and safety advisories to cancellation policies and new travel guidelines, the TripIt Traveler Resource Center makes it easy to find the latest travel advisories, restrictions, and guidelines, alongside other helpful resources, so you have the information you need to make the best decision for your next trip.

Where to find it: The TripIt Traveler Resource Center is available to all travelers via the TripIt website and mobile web.

Neighborhood Safety Scores

TripIt’s Neighborhood Safety Scores help travelers learn about the safety of the neighborhood they’re visiting, including a Health and Medical score that factors in COVID-19 data.

Travelers can access hyper-local safety ratings along any point within their TripIt itinerary for more than 65,000 cities and neighborhoods for both daytime and nighttime. This helps users visualize and gain an understanding of current safety conditions by location.

Where to find it: Neighborhood Safety Scores are available for each location on your TripIt itinerary with an address.

Point Tracker

Airlines, car rentals, hotels, credit cards: no matter where the points come from, Point Tracker in TripIt Pro stores all your account numbers, balances, and expiration dates in one place. Point Tracker has been recently redesigned with an improved view of your point balances and history to help you manage your reward programs. We’ve also made it easier to see when an account needs attention.

For iOS users, we also added support for travel providers’ regional programs, so you get the most accurate information.

When you’re ready to travel again, Point Tracker’s enhanced features can help you make the best decision about how to get where you’re going.

Where to find it: Point Tracker can be found under the Pro tab in your TripIt app.

WHILE YOU ARE ON THE GO

Nearby Places

Nearby Places—the TripIt feature that makes it easy to find places close to where you’re staying—now shows the locations of the nearest medical facilities, including hospitals, clinics, and pharmacies.

Should you need medical help while traveling, TripIt’s Nearby Places will give you the medical facility’s contact details, hours, and more. TripIt will also show you an interactive map with each option tagged so you can see where it is in relation to your accommodations. You can easily get directions or tap the plus (+) sign to save it in TripIt now to visit later.

Where to find it: You can access Nearby Places in the lodging details screen of your TripIt app. To get there, tap on your trip, and then tap on where you’re staying. There you will find Nearby Places. Select the type of place you’re looking for, and TripIt will find what’s close by.

Siri Shortcuts

Touchless technology can help minimize your contact with surfaces as you travel. With TripIt’s newly enhanced Travel Plans shortcut, Siri will respond with the most relevant details at any point in your itinerary—whether that’s your flight, hotel, road trip pit-stop, or other plans.

The TripIt Travel Plans shortcut for Siri automatically adjusts to the part of the trip you’re on, giving you the information you need most, in that moment.

Where to find it: By saying “Hey Siri, Travel Plans,” iOS users can receive an update on what’s next in their itinerary.

From planning to landing—and every touchpoint in between—TripIt can help you plan and prepare for traveling in our new normal.
